Chad and I have the first meeting with our our marriage celebrant on Sunday. He is a friend of our family and it is lovely to have someone we know able to perform our ceremony.
Chad and I are both a bit in the dark about what we need to do, so I did a search today to research online the legalities of getting married in Australia.
It all seems fairly straightforward. You have to warn the government that you are going to get married at least a month and a day in advance, and make sure that you have the right person to perform the ceremony.
We should be in good hands and good time for our wedding!
